In case you haven’t heard, plans for a Titanic replica has been put into motion by an Australian billionaire. A ship called the Titanic II is being built and set for its maiden voyage in 2016, check here for the full article.
Since the news broke on Tuesday, Twitter has exploded with tweets; some clever and well thought out, others are racist and in poor taste. Below I have compiled a list of what I find to be the funniest/most creative/thoughtful ones. Feel free to add any additional ones in the comments!
@andrewhibbard Wait a second… by the time Titanic II gets built, the Earth will be all ocean and zero icebergs… Well played Mr. Billionaire sir. @RexHuppke Hipsters are already lining up to buy tickets to ride on Titanic II because if it sinks they win irony. @TCrabtree83 I’m going to build an exact replica of the iceberg that sank the Titanic and follow the Titanic II around for awhile. @ejc Already booked my voyage on Titanic II – setting up shop as “The guy who paints female passengers naked” @ghero46 I’ve got this weird, sinking feeling about the Titanic II being built. @ArtsWriter If Celine Dion’s on board and singing, I just may steer it into the nearest iceberg myself. #Titanic II @BeeeejEsq I’ll bet the Pope only stepped down so he could follow his dream of traveling the world with an elite dance troupe on the new Titanic II. @Ponderlock The Titanic II is being unveiled. This should give all those morbid people obsessed with the 1st ship sinking something new to cheer about. @humanist_steve Plans announced of a fabulous Titanic II that will sail the original route. Savvy travelers can save big by buying the one-way ticket. @EllyZupko Breaking news: Carnival apologizes to survivors of the “Nightmare Cruise” by giving them tickets for the inaugural voyage of Titanic II.
